Stanford Business Panel on Compensation and Hiring

The recent Stanford University 2010 Conference on Entrepreneurship brought together a well-developed panel: it combined the experience of an entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, an executive recruiter, an in-house HR and recruiting expert, and the Human Capital Partner of a leading VC firm to discuss how to effectively recruit teams and structure appropriate compensation — in terms of both cash and equity — at all stages of a company.

Panel members include Joe Dobrenski, a venture capitalist who formerly was an executive recruiter for Russell Reynolds, and Andy Price, a recruiter at Schweichler Price Mullarkey & Barry, a retained executive search firm.
